For manufacturers, top of mind is finding new ways to streamline operations. This issue encompasses much more than simply reducing materials waste in production. Financial resources and employee time are also valuable, as are other limited enterprise systems assets. Manufacturers have always and continue to invest significant time and money to try and ensure that these resources are utilized as efficiently and effectively as possible.
For all these reasons and more, manufacturers are turning to Robotic Process Automation (RPA). RPA, especially when combined with artificial intelligence (AI) to create intelligent automation, can accelerate the efficiency of supply chain management, providing transparency and control that is needed today, according to a new report by the Everest Group.
